Get a first taste of the City of Water on our Venice Legends & Mysteries Free Tour. We'll learn all about the mysteries hidden in this city's fascinating history and explore its less-visited places.
Venice Legends & Mysteries Free Tour
At 11 am, we'll meet at the steps of San Simeone Piccolo Church, near Santa Lucia station. We'll kick off our free tour of the legends and mysteries of Venice with a stroll along the banks of the Grand Canal.
We'll stop in some of the most beautiful squares in Venice as we make our way to the Cannaregio neighbourhood, which is the oldest neighbourhood in the city.
Afterwards, we'll head to the Venetian Ghetto. It was in this part of Cannaregio that the Jewish population were forced to live by the Venetian Republic from the early 16th to the end of the 18th century. While walking through this part of Venice, we'll discuss the history of the buildings we come across.
You'll also see how the locals live as we wander through residential areas rarely frequented by tourists and learn about local legends.
Our free tour will finish by the famous Rialto Bridge, where we'll round off the activity with incredible views.
We're unable to accept bookings of more than 6 people on this free tour. If you're in a large group, you can reserve a private tour of Venice.
